Question about Breville Die Cast 800ESXL Espresso Machine

How to disassemble for troubleshooting?

A friend has one that will not turn off - as soon as it's plugged in, the pump runs continuously. I feel pretty confident about troubleshooting the electrical parts, but we haven't figured out how to get the top cover off! The two big conical plastic inserts on either side of the portafill seem like the key, but having taken them out I can't see what to do next.

    I'm on my second Breville with the same problem. You plug it in and the pump starts without pressing the power button. The first Breville I had was kindly taken back by the manufacturer and now I have to do it again. I'm wondering whats going on here. It appears to be a mellon of a product.

I can't get the clear plastic cover off the circuit board... Seems there might be another screw I am missing. Also, can't get the gray plastic cover off the left hand side, near where the power cord goes into the machine

I just tried disassembling it. With the machine facing you, the
circuit board is on the left panel. You just need to unscrew and take off the grey plastic on the left, and you will see the electric
cord and a circuit board inside a clear plastic case.
There are 2 grey plastic conical inserts (they are recessed into
the machine) one on each side, next to where the water drips into
the coffee filter, use a long philip head screw driver to loosen the
screws until the inserts drop. These two inserts are holding the top lid in place. Now with the machine facing away from you,
push the top lid forward, it should come right off.

You can now take the circuit board clear case out. Carefully
and gently pull the wires out with a piler, some are difficult to
pull.

I probed around different components. The zener diode, labeled
ZD6 (1N4749A) on the circuit board was burnt. When not burnt, you should
read about 0.46V when you test it with a multimeter. This diode
is next to 2 blue electrolytic capacitor. This zener diode is
easy to find, it is like 5 cents, definitely not $40.

After taking off the two big conical inserts, you have to slide very strongly the top from the back to the front. It will pop out and then you will be able to remove the top.

My 2001vw passat some times won't start unless i use starting fluid.I have changed air filter and spark plugs. When i hook it up no codes come up


Troubleshooting steps:
  1. When you first turn the key on, listen for the sound of the FUEL PUMP (humming sound). If you just turn the key on but don't turn it to START, the fuel pump should run for no more than 3-5 seconds. If it does, continue troubleshooting;
  2. If the FUEL PUMP runs longer than 3-5 seconds, check for fuel leaks.
  3. Test pressure at the fuel rail. If pressure is erratic or too high at idle, replace the fuel pressure regulator;
  4. If fuel pressure is too low at idle, replace the fuel filter. Still too low? Replace the fuel pump and fuel pickup strainer.

My 2001 f-250 won't run the fuel pump kicks on and continues to run removed the plugs on injectors one at a time and still does same thing could it be the computer



Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.



From start to end troubleshooting these problems I suggest you to check the help link below and follow its procedure: -----

Breaker kicks off as soon as switch is turned on


the gfci is defective from moisture even after they dry they can be defective,access the cord inside the machine and try a different cord and see if this is your problem,otherwise the pump motor could be bad,the bypass valve on the pump could be bad,if you could run it you could check current draw with an amprobe,but not if it wont start

I have a whirlpool duet sport with an error code F21. It is not a blocked drian pipe, and is making a noise with the pump.


check drain trap for restriction
If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves turn off.
This error code is only shown in Diagnostic test.
Possible Causes/Procedure
- Ask the customer how much detergent they are using and if it is HE
detergent. May have too much suds present causing this condition.
- Turn washer ON to verify pump operates; run the drain cycle.
- Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
- Unplug washer or disconnect power
- Make sure that wire harness connections at the Drain Pump, Pressure SW,
& CCU (DP2, PR6 cavities) connectors are not broken or with wires detached,
and that connector internal pins are visible.
- Check continuity from the Drain Pump & CCU (DP2 cavity) connectors.
- Check continuity from the Pressure SW & CCU (PR6 cavity) connectors.
- If the continuity diagnosis failed, Main Harness must be replaced.
- Make continuity test to the Pressure SW. See page 8.
- Check the resistance of the motor pump. See page 8.
- Plug in washer or reconnect power.
- Run the drain cycle.
- If the failure continues, unplug washer or disconnect power.
- Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
- Disassemble the drain pump from the washer.
- Check that the impeller is not detached from the motor shaft. If the
impeller is detached from the shaft, is broken or has any scratches,
the drain pump must be replaced.
- Plug in washer or reconnect power.
- Verify the unit operation by performing the Diagnostic Test cycle.
See page 5.
- After the diagnostic test has finished, unplug washer or disconnect
power and wait for 15 seconds.

Cycle just continues with the pot symbol blinking


disconnect the hose and run it into a bucket, is it pumping freely?.

did you check the trap for a blockage?

You may have a leak in the pump housing area below the unit, this would cause the drain pump to run continually.

Fuel Pump Runs Continuously - Not Relay


It could be some water in a wiring harness plug causing the relay to stay on constantly, or a short to earth in the switching side of the fuel pump circuit, but really it needs a auto electrician to have a look over it to find out why the relay is staying powered on all the time. When you plug in the relay can you feel it click on straight away? Or does the pump run regardless of whether the relay is plugged in or not? If the latter is true, check for damage to the wiring loom from the relay to the pump. Other than that, its probably auto sparky time.

Hope this helps,
Mark.

Bosch SHU33A06/22 does not drain


I think so. Check for power at the pump. If so is it running. There are seperate pumps for drain and wash. It is also possible the impeller came loose and the motor is running but not turning the impeller.

My jkp86-30 works properly, but as soon as you turn it on to bake the fan starts? And will continue to run the entire time and sometimes for over 30minutes after you have shut it off. Is this normal? Bob


This is likely a defective thermistor.

There should be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

Fan runs when door is closed, but no heat.

Sunbeam Microwave stopped working suddenly


Here's the overview on fuse blows: If the fuse blows as soon as you plug the oven in the wall, or when you open the door, the problem is likely with the door switches. If the fuse blows as soon as you hit START, then it's likely that you have a shorted high-voltage capacitor. If the fuse blows a few seconds after you hit START, then it's likely that you have an overheating / shorting high-voltage transformer. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, troubleshooting info, door switch info, etc. at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
